Everything You Need to Know to Prepare for a Maternity Photo Shoot

We love maternity photos! Being pregnant is such a precious moment in a woman’s life, and expecting a baby together as a married couple can be very exciting. Here are a few useful things to know if you’re considering a maternity photo shoot.

Why take maternity photos

Graduation, engagements, weddings… becoming a parent for the first time. These life-changing moments symbolise your commitment to a new chapter of life. It’s a milestone to celebrate and remember. In future, you and your spouse will have these photos to look back on and see how much you’ve grown over the years. The best part about taking maternity photos, is being able to one day spend quality time with your children as you flip through the photo album and showing them how valued they are, even from the day they were just a wee baby bump in ‘mama’s belly’!

Family Portraits at Lake Gardens: The Chen Family

It’s always a joy to photograph multi-generational families, even more when they’re up for taking it outdoors! The Chen family led by Mi Ghent, together with siblings and spouses, nephew, grandpa… and us, spent a sunny morning at Lake Gardens before everything was closed. We usually have to wake up rather early to catch good morning light before the day starts getting too hot and bright. That day was no exception, and judging from the photos – it was totally worth it! Even grandpa had the biggest smile on his face at the end of the shoot!

Mike, Mi Ghent’s brother, left us a lovely note after the shoot too:

“My sister has been using Stories service for some time now and it’s a testament to how good and professional Stories are. Grace makes the photography session a breeze and makes us comfortable and most important look good on photos.”

Capturing My Journey Towards Parenthood

 Photo from Bin Bin

I’ve never really considered myself to be a very maternal person. In fact, there was a time in my youth where I wasn’t even sure if I wanted kids.

What changed? It could merely be the passage of time and the perspective gained along with it, or finding the right partner to parent with. Whichever it was, since making that decision to have children, it’s been such a journey of self discovery for me and my husband and I’ve realised that this is such a precious time that only happens once in our lives.

Below are the moments in the journey towards parenthood that I now look back on and savour. If I could go back in time, I would have done more to document this experience – especially taking many more photographs!
